History
History

  • 1979 - Committee decided to combine all documents under its jurisdiction

    • NFPA 56F, 76A, 76B-T, etc.

  • 1984 - First issuance of NFPA 99

  • 1987 - Integrated all of the individual documents into chapters

  • 2005 - Complete evaluation and rewrite of current document.

2008 WSC&E on NFPA 99


Scope
Scope

  • Establish criteria to minimize:

    • The hazards of fire,

    • Explosion, and

    • Electricity

  • Facilities providing services to human beings.

2008 WSC&E on NFPA 99


Purpose
Purpose

  • To provide minimum requirements for the:

    • Performance,

    • Maintenance,

    • Testing, and

    • Safe practices for …

2008 WSC&E on NFPA 99


Application
Application

  • Applies to all health care facilities

  • Construction and equipment requirements for new only

  • Only altered or renovated or modernized portion of the building

  • If above modifies the performance of a system it must be modified

2008 WSC&E on NFPA 99


So what is going on
So What is Going On?

  • NFPA Standards Administration has extended the cycle to 5 years for the rewrite.

  • Technical Committee members have been charged with stretching to modify chapters for the year 2020

2008 WSC&E on NFPA 99


Global goals and changes
Global Goals and Changes

  • Modernize the document

  • Clear and consistent set of criteria

  • Establish three risk levels of patient care

  • All chapters will have the same look

  • Establish a section for existing system requirements

2008 WSC&E on NFPA 99


Categories of patient risk

Categories of Patient Risk

Category 1

Facility systems in which failure of such equipment or system is likely to cause major injury or death of patients or caregivers shall be designed to meet system category 1 as defined in this standard.

Annex Material

Systems are expected to work or be available at all times to support patient needs.

Categories of patient risk1
Categories of Patient Risk

Category 2

Facility systems in which failure of such equipment is likely to cause minor injury to patients or caregivers shall be designed to meet system category 2 as defined in this standard.

Annex Material

Systems are expected to provide a high level of reliability; however, limited short durations of equipment downtime can be tolerated without significant impact on patient care. Category 2 systems support patient needs, but are not critical for life support.


Categories of patient risk2
Categories of Patient Risk

Category 3

Facility systems in which failure of such equipment is not likely to cause injury to the patients or caregivers, but may cause patient discomfort shall be designed to meet system category 3 as defined in this standard.

Annex Material

Normal building system reliabilities are expected. Such systems support patient’s needs but failure of such equipment would not immediately effect patient care. Such equipment is not critical for life support.


Categories of patient risk3
Categories of Patient Risk

Category 4

Facility systems in which failure of such equipment would have no impact on patient care shall be designed to meet system category 4 as defined in this standard.

Annex Material

Such systems have no impact on patient care and would not be noticeable to patients in the event of failure. There are no minimum requirements for such equipment.
